Bohm Country

Randy Vallance invited me to take photos at the Bohm Theater in Albion, MI. for Bohm Country. Randys been a long-time supporter of the theater and was doing a live-streamed video for the Bohms Facebook page.

I jumped at the chance to take photos at a live-streamed concert. It felt weird shooting live music with just a few tech guys and nobody in the theater. Like many, I've missed seeing and photographing live music.

The band, 5-Second Rule features Michael "Albion Slim" Crupi, Heather Kulaga, and Gary Martin are a brand new band. It was there first time performing together as a band.

The talented group played a mix of Country, including classic artists like Williams and Nelson, to more contemporary Country artists. The band members also embraced the Blues, playing songs from blues greats Collins, King, and Vaughn.

At the start or the show, I was concentrating on capturing photos; as I looked across the room, Randy was working hard streaming the video. After the first set, the mood changed, and the music took over. We both were enjoying the music, and the 5-Second Rule sounded great!

The Bohm Theater is doing Blues at the Bohm on the first Monday every month, and they are also going to do a monthly Bohm Country. These shows will be live-streamed via Facebook until the theater can open back up to fans.

Photography should be fun! It's not about the phone or camera brand you're using. Always remember, your best photographs are the result of one thing, making an effort to get out and shoot.

Comments always welcomed.
